Management Resources Plague IT While Peak Performance Remains Elusive in Virtual Environments
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – June 07, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — IT administrators and leaders are now more pained by manageability than performance when it comes to data storage. That’s the finding of a new survey of 300 data center professionals, conducted by Tintri, Inc., a leading producer of VM-aware storage (VAS) for virtualization and cloud environments.
Today, Tintri released the results of its annual State of Storage for virtualized enterprises study. The final report is a compilation of feedback from global IT professionals on pains, priorities, opinions and concerns around the storage industry.
Unlike Tintri’s 2015 State of Storage survey, when performance and latency topped the list of storage pain points, this year 49 percent of respondents identified their biggest concern as manageability — a jump of 10 percentage points. At the same time, more than one third of respondents said they still rely on antiquated spreadsheets to manage and map their virtual machines.
Respondents noted that their virtual footprint continues to grow, with one in three indicating that 90 percent of their applications are virtualized, and four in five were at least 50 percent virtualized. One-half of the survey-takers oversee at least 500 virtual machines and more than one-quarter manage 1,000 or more virtual machines.
“The storage landscape and its challenges continue to evolve,” said Yael Zheng, chief marketing officer at Tintri. “While performance remains a top challenge, IT professionals are increasingly concerned about the challenge of managing a complex virtualized infrastructure. Especially at scale — as virtualized and cloud environments expand to tens of thousands of VMs — the burden on IT to manage storage with reduced staffing, predict future growth and maintain uptime will stretch resources to a breaking point.”
The survey also examined the manageability challenges that come with a growing virtual footprint. According to responses, here’s how these challenges are being met:
Most respondents (69 percent) indicated that they are exploring new technologies to address their current challenges. The most frequently cited evaluation criteria prioritize performance, integration with existing infrastructure, ability to scale and cost per gigabyte.
